2021 Spinifex La Maline Shiraz Viognier Eden Valley

From: $70.00

2021 Spinifex La Maline Shiraz Viognier Eden Valley – All fruit is hand harvested. Fermented with indigenous yeasts in open oak and stainless-steel fermenters for between 12 and 21 days prior to pressing. Between 30-45 % of whole bunches were retained within the otherwise de-stemmed must. Around 2% whole Viognier fruit was included in the fermenters. Elevage was undertaken in French oak barriques and demi-muids, approximately 40% new, on light lees for 20 months prior to assemblage and bottling.

Deep aromatics of woody spices – sandalwood, cardamom, mace and pepper – fuse with deeper fresh leather, ink, char and dark chocolate notes. Fruit aromatics are cool and dark – spiced black cherry and tart blackberry laced Asian basil and dried marjoram.

Medium to full bodied – at this point unevolved – spiced black cherry and sour dark plum fruits on attack turn to red plum and raspberry fruits, the flavours and feel of pomegranate cocoa build towards the finish – beneath the tannin the palate is quite open knit, wood and bunch tannins are yet to fully integrate and drive the palate to a tight, fine finish. Elegant, cool feel.

Another do-not-miss Spinifex red.
